According to the expert, the Alliance will not respond to any provocations other than direct attacks.

NATO will not confront Russia unless Moscow attacks any member of the Alliance. As Peter Dickinson, a researcher of the American Atlantic Council think tank, in his interview for FREEDOM TV channel.

According tom him, the NATO is a democratic organization, where decisions are made by all 30 Member States. And most of these countries don't understand what the full-scale war is.

"And it's very difficult to explain to any of these societies - British, French, German, Italian and so on – that we're going to go to war with Russia. They have no concept of war. Yes, for the last 20-30 years, some of them have been fighting "out there" – in Iraq, Afghanistan, North Africa. Still, when they think about big war of a big great European country with Russia, they don’t understand what it is. It's very scary for them, it's very scary," Dickinson said.

According to the expert, the Alliance will not respond to any provocations by Russia, other than a direct attack against the member states. The incident in Poland is an indicator of this attitude.

"As long as Russian missiles don't fall on NATO lands (not Ukrainian missiles that are used for protection against the the Russian Federation),  this (closure of the sky, - Ed.) will not happen, unfortunately," says the analyst, referring to the incident in Polish Przewodow, where a missile fell in Poland near the Ukrainian border killing two people.
